“‘I knew he’d get beaten to a pulp,’” JTA, September 10, 2017 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):
A former principal at a preparatory school for teenagers in Marseille said that he regularly advised Jews not to attend his institution for fear of harassment by other students.
The revelation, that has grabbed front-page headlines in mainstream media in France, came in a newly-published book coauthored by the retired principal, Bernard Ravet, and Emmanuel Davindenkoff, a Le Monde journalist.
In an interview for the L’Express newspaper, Ravet recalled one case in which he as the principal of a public school asked a counterpart from a private Jewish school in Marseille to accept an Israeli boy whose mother wanted to enroll him at Ravet’s school.
Ravet said he “knew the boy would get beat to pulp” as soon as the other students realize he is an Israeli Jew. “Hiding my embarrassment, I asked the mother whether she had considered enrolling her boy at Yavneh,” a Jewish school in Marseille, said Ravet, who used to head the Versaille prep school in the same city. After the mother said Yavneh was full, Ravet intervened to had the boy accepted there anyway, he told L’Express.
Ravet first realized his school was not unsuitable for Jews when a radio journalist, Edouard Zambeaux, asked some his students during interviews whether there were any Jews studying in their institution. “If there are, then they have to hide it,” one student said, sending “a chill down my back,” Ravet recalled….
Ravet also found Islamist verses about killing homosexuals and mutilating thieves circulating among the student population….
